I’ve long suffered from leg and foot cramps at night, and they’re so painful that they wake me up. My calves go into spasms, my feet and toes curl under, and the pain is hideous. It’s disturbing my sleep so much, and I’m consequently tired during the day. I wake up with the pain, and have to stand up and walk around to get rid of the pain, so it disturbs my partner as well. I’ve tried massaging my legs and feet, both before I go to bed, and also when the cramps occur. I’ve tried Magnesium supplements, Crampeze, and Carusos Magnesium, with very limited success. It does seem much worse during hot weather, especially if I get overheated, but it only ever happens in bed at night. I’m at my wit’s end, and wondered if any Mums have been through something similar, and what they did to resolve the problem?
